Kraven’s Last Hunt is apparently the inspiration for the Kraven the Hunter movie which will also feature Spider-Man.
Sony is going all in on their Spider-Man solo films and now that Venom is in cinemas and proving to be a hit at the box office, we can look forward to plenty more of them, including Kraven the Hunter.
Richard Wenk has been hired to write the script and in a conversation with DiscussingFilm, the writer revealed some interesting details about the movie:
“I’m just starting it. It’s an interesting world. A great character. It’s going to adhere very closely to the lore of Kraven the Hunter. And he is going to come face to face with Spider-Man. I’m just beginning it, beginning the process, and because it’s a big IP, Marvel world, there’s lots of hurdles to overcome before you can start writing, to crack the right story and to get the right tone. It’s a new world for me. But what’s nice about it is it’s a very grounded character, he doesn’t have a lot of crazy superpowers and things like that so he’s more grounded and that fits what I like to do. That’s as much as I know.
“You have to look at everything just to soak it in. I think that what we’re all circling is ‘Kraven’s Last Hunt’ and whether this is the precursor to that movie or will include it. We’re talking about those things. And even the idea that maybe Kraven could be like Kill Bill where we’re basically writing two movies.”
Are you excited by the prospect of a movie inspired by Kraven’s Last Hunt? Of course, it’s very early stages yet but with the promise of Spider-Man being involved (be in Tom Holland, or another non-MCU incarnation of the web-slinger), this will surely bring even more eyeballs to the project.
